I tried to import saved data and bookmarks as usual from Chrome and miserably failed both on macOS and Windows 10 (using the steps as shown in the attached screenshot). Reproduced on Firefox 90.0.2.

Any tips on how to fix that? Sure, I could export all the bookmarks in a HTML file and import it later, but it does not include saved logins nor history.

Different bookmarks in different profiles in same account

I'd like to have, in my one firefox account, a 'private' profile with my private life bookmarks and a 'work' profile with my work life bookmarks. However, this doesn't seem to work. I open firefox with work profile and see my work bookmarks, then I close and reopen with private profile and see my private bookmarks, then I close and reopen again with work profile and now I still see my private bookmarks instead of my work bookmarks. Firefox just unsolicitedly takes the private bookmarks over to the work profile. This can't be how it's supposed to be, right? Because what would be the point of having different profiles? I hope you can help me with this.

Hallo, ich hoffe, es kann mir auch auf deutsch geantwortet werden. Ich habe zwei Probleme: Ich wollte Lesezeichen und angelegte Ordner löschen. Diese sind dann auch für sehr kurze Zeit verschwunden, tauchen aber dann wieder wie aus dem nichts auf. > Wie kann ich Lesezeichen und Ordner dauerhaft löschen? Ein weiteres Problem ist die Sortierung der Lesezeichen und Ordner. Nach jedem Öffenen von Firefox ist alles unsortiert geordnet. > Wie kann ich das einstellen? Alle beiden Probleme tauchen erst seit kurzer Zeit auf. Vorher lief das reibungslos. Vielen Dank, Dirk Baltes

Is there anyway to restore the format (compactness) of the Bookmark Menus without setting the Automatic Updates to not automatically update and then downloading the 88.0.1 version? I hate to not have the Automatic Updates, for obvious reasons, but don't want to use the double space of the Bookmarks even more.

Hi! I have been a Firefox user on PC/Windows for a long time, years, and had quite a lot of bookmarks. One day, while various FireFox updates were happening, I noticed something, I think it was a popup, saying something to the effect that all your bookmarks will be deleted. Huh!? Couldn't click on anything to stop the install. And after computer restarted, all the bookmarks were gone from FireFox, meaning when I go to the bookmarks button, nothing shows anymore. What happened? They are really gone or where to find a backup to get them back again? I don't recall ever backing them up on purpose, so if there was a backup, it would have been an automatic thing. Please give input. Thank you!

Hi, I have seen instructions on the Google search on how to do this but the instructions don't line up with the current version of Firefox. YouTube videos are all about using code which is beyond me. There must be a piece of software (app) or some other simple way to do this. Has anyone found a way yet?

Thanks, Pete

I was having some trouble with Firefox and decided to uninstall and reinstall it. I selected it in MS Control Panel and clicked on uninstall. A Firefox window popped up and suggested that I try refreshing it instead. I selected that. The result was that a "Welcome to Firefox" webpage opened. Clicking on its link for Bookmarks showed that "Recent Bookmarks" and "Library" were both empty. How can I retrieve my Bookmarks?

The appearance of my bookmarks has recently changed, and I want to change it back. The individual bookmarks are spread out more, so now they take up more space on my screen and I need to scroll the list. I don't need the extra space, I find it annoying and not at all necessary. I have included images of how it looks now and (a doctored image, granted) approximately how it looked before. I've looked all over and I can't find anything on "Appearance of bookmarks".

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

The bookmark favicon is wrong and does not match the favicon on the tab. I have deleted and rebuilt favicons.sqlight. The bookmark in question is still wrong. There is no entry for the bookmark in favicons.sqlight. I've reinstalled Firefox, rebooted Windows, ... to no avail. I even tried using favicon.ico without success. The HTML page is correct.

The HTML is simple and the favicon shows on the tab correctly -

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="Bandwidth1.png">
<style>
img {
max-width:100%;
height:auto;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<h2>Network Bandwidth Usage - CS1</h2>
<img src="summary.png" alt="Summary">
<div style="float: left;">
<img src="day.png" alt="Days">
</div>
<div style="float: left;">
<img src="month.png" alt="Months"><br/>
<img src="top.png" alt="Top10">
